Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

We are a much faster overall team than we were under JT. Ted Ginn aside we simply didnt have the depth of speed then as we do now. I think the 2014 team wins easily against both 2005 and 06. Victor will redshirt if Gibson blows up simply because he wont be needed. I see Victor doing what Marshall did, redshirting to develop a little more then leave early for the NFL.

Was this guy Baylor's Prez back when that hoops player got murdered and the coach tried to hide it? If he was he's obviously part of the problem hiring questionable coaches.

TTUN homerisms aside, Urbans recruiting being a bust after 2012-13 is about as far fetched as TTUN competing for anything without a QB. 9-3 puts as as worse as TTUN last year. No Urban Meyer coached team has been that mediocre.
Comment 19 May 2016

The logic behind this pick is largely based on the notion that Ohio State has no talented players left and that everyone Urban has recruited since the 2012 and 2013 classes are busts, which is entirely silly being that most of them havent even played yet. if they're basing that 8.5-win total on how we looked in the Spring Game they obviously forgot how awful we looked during the 2014 Spring Game.

Non-Scarlet Colored Classes pick: No worse than 10-2, a win over TTUN and possible berth in the B1G title game. I'll take 11-2 and flirting with the playoffs on a down year ANY day. 8.5 wins? What-the-fuck-ever.

The "Reply to All" thing is extremely annoying where I work, my company has over 70,000 employees. On some days I'll get 1,000 messages just from that crap.

And oh yeah, people who steal your food from the fridge. We actually fired someone for doing that here.

I've never been one to judge 20-year old college players who do a HELL of a lot more than any of us. These 5 players are busting their asses and doing their best. Hope they step up and get to play but I'm the last person to want to toss these kids aside if they dont play a lot. It always angers me when I read people post (paraphrasing) "This guy isnt performing so get rid of them to free up a scholarship." If we did that to everyone we'd never see memorable seasons from 4th-5th-6th year players. Curtis Grant anyone? And in Worley's defense he was behind a first round draft pick for 2 years. It does not mean he hasnt been performing well.

I put the 2002 NC win over Miami as my No. 1 just because of what it represented. Amends for the years of frustration from the Cooper years, our first NC in decades and on top of that the culmination of not only a roller coaster season but one HELL of a title game. I remember crying from the relief of it all.

1. 2002 Fiesta Bowl win over Miami for the national title

2. 2006 TTUN game

3. 2015 Sugar Bowl win over Bama

4. 2015 NC win over Oregon

5. 1997 Rose Bowl win over Arizona State

My personal observation is that shameless and ignorant UM homers are just as irritating.

FTFY

Urban signs the best players. Period. The people who complain that Urban doesnt recruit Ohio enough are the same ones who cheer when we win a national title with OOS players. They're also the first to bitch when we lose a game with OOS players, too. Urban does what he thinks is right. That's enough for me. I dont care where any of our players are from just as long as they perform.
